Bradley Cooper attends a special screening of "Serena", hosted by The Cinema Society and Dior Beauty, at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema on Saturday, March, 21, 2015, in New York.

Two Philadelphia entertainers were named Thursday to the Time magazine list of 100 most influential people.

Director-producer Lee Daniels fell into the "Titans" category. Daniels, who directed "Precious" and "The Butler," is also the creator of the hit show "Empire." 

Oprah Winfrey wrote of her time working with Daniels.

His eyes and ears are attuned to nuance. He knows how to rattle the nerves of the zeitgeist. He is an undeniable, singular voice, the likes of which we’ve rarely seen.

Actor Bradley Cooper made the list in the "Artists" category. 

Fellow actor and friend Oliver Pratt praised Cooper's acting skills and down-to-earth personality.

Turns out this psycho was in fact a loving, grounded, hardworking fellow whose priorities in life are his dog Charlotte, the Philadelphia Eagles and showing up for people he cares about.
